    Because you need another 57,734 attacks to be comparable with Islam.
    I don't care. An attack is an attack.

    "I think that all white people should apologise on his behalf!!!"

    (Original post by queen-bee)
    This is so accurate hahah
    Why?
    Shouldn't we rather be condemning the ideology of white supremacy that motivated the attack?

    By your logic, that would mean that all Muslims should apologise for the Paris attacks, and that is a ridiculous idea that no intelligent person subscribes to.

    I can't see a lot of white people condemning it. Where are they hiding?

    Why do you think I should condemn this act?

    It was more of a rhetorical question.

    To put it another way, any violent attack on another person is wrong. Any civilised person with a shred of human empathy would condemn the deliberate and malicious wounding or killing of any fellow human, regardless of race, nationality, religion or ideology (especially outside the context of legitimate armed conflict).

    So, with that in mind, why wouldn't you condemn it?

    I didn't say I wouldn't.

    And your paragraph above is debatable.

    Well, do you? You seemed concerned that "white people" hadn't - although I fail to see what race has to do with it.

    Well obviously I do. You fail to see what race has to do with it when there was a guy shouting 'white power' with a machete?

    You said 'any violent attack on another person is wrong.'
    Is it wrong if I punched/slapped a murderer on the face?

    Race obviously was an issue with the attack, but why does race have anything to do with the condemnation?

    Yes. You would be guilty of assault. In civilised society, vigilante justice is illegal, and wrong.

    Why were Muslims constantly being asked to condemn the Paris attack then?

    Firstly, everyone should condemn it.
    Secondly, the ideological motivation for the attack is relevant. Although that in no way means that others who share that ideology are responsible, the sharing of the ideology means that there is some requirement to distance themselves from their fellow ideologists if they do not want to be tainted by association.

    As I said earlier, other white supremacists would have more pressure on them to condemn than ordinary "white folk" who do not agree with white supremacy ideologies.

    In the same way, with the Paris attacks, Muslims would be under more pressure to condemn than French Algerians who do not agree with Islam.

    It could be claimed that it is slightly racist to assume that everyone of the same colour holds the same views.

    Vigilante justice is illegal and frowned on in civilised countries. I realise that it is common in certain parts of the world, but they aren't all that civilised (obviously).

    Nobody advocated that, did they? Doesn't your religion have something to say about people who attack others?
